How do you feel after visiting a historical place you've seen in books or movies/internet over the years?
When I sit at home and plan where to travel, my firsts picks are those places I studied at school, or places where history, culture and architecture are different from countries I've previously been. What about you?
Even though I saw Times Square before I Central Park, the moment I truly felt I was in NYC was when I looked out after getting off the elevator at the Rockefeller Centre and saw Central Park from above! I’m so fascinated by the defined shape of the park, and I’m so glad that a city like New York has such a big green space 🌳

Photographic evidence of the one and only day I’ve ever spent in Nevada. Best of all, no money was gambled or lost (can you believe I’ve never been to Vegas?!) North Lake Tahoe was a gorgeous place to post up for the day, particularly on this rock where I was able to A. avoid allllll the people and B. catch a 💣 sunset.
It’s your road, and yours alone, others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you. I agree that the hardest walk is walking alone because that walk makes you the strongest. Do you feel the same way? 😊

Will I ever grow up? Will I ever stop laughing at immature jokes like a 13yo boy? Will my legs ever stop growing? Tune into next week's episode of absolutely not. 🍦
Instagram vs real life. Laughing cause I realised I may have flashed my 🍑 at the girls. Preference?

Hello, ihr Lieben 💕 Hoffe es geht euch gut? 🤗 Ich schwelge gerade total in Urlaubserinnerungen 💭 Und daher lade ich heute mal ein Bild von der kleinen, aber feinen, polnischen Halbinsel Hel hoch 🥰 Obwohl ich erst vor kurzem wieder zurückgekommen bin, möchte ich direkt wieder weg - und zum Glück ist mein Wunsch wahr geworden, denn morgen gehts für das Wochenende nach Den Haag 🇳🇱Freue mich schon riesig 😍 Wenn reisen kostenlos wäre, würde man mich wahrscheinlich nie wieder sehen 😂 Liebe es einfach ❤️ Gehts auch da genauso? ✈️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀• • •

Did you know that this Sagrada Família temple in Barcelona has been under construction for more than 135 years? 😳
Delve into the lessons fear
brings and rise with courage.
There is always room to grow
to be better but, today celebrate
who you already are.

This has been a very positive week for me so far. I feel I need to post a full on life update because it's too much to be grateful for ✨ for those who tuned in here very early when this was just another travel account, for those who came lately because of my woo woo talks, and all the others lurking because it's easy to stay updated on someone's life by not saying anything and just tapping with a thumb ❤️
But first, excuse me, the sun came out, I am heading out shortly to a festival in vintage Vivienne Westwood rubber boots, fixing a bad memory by re listening to @jungle4eva - everything else will follow 🍸 #theendlesssummer#loa#festivalvibes

At the Bayon temple, which was the last state temple to be built at Angkor and the only one built primarily as a Mahayana Buddhist shrine dedicated to Buddha. The many faces are believed to represent the Khmer king Jayavarman VII because of their similarity to other statues depicting him. 🙊🌼

I’m not a big tobacco smoker but when you find yourself horseback riding to a farm, where tobacco is freshly grown, and rolled into cigars by hand. You feel slightly inclined to accept that free cigar #yolo .
Our guide, Arian, was amazing and showed us the ins and outs on how the farmers in Cuba grow and harvest fresh tobacco!
Tobacco seeds are smaller than a pea, sort of like fish food pellets. It takes a little bit over a month for the plant to become full grown and harvested. Once the plant is harvested, the leaves are dried in a barn like the one you see us standing in front of! It takes about a couple months for the leaves to be dried, once the leaves are properly dried, they are sorted and put through a process of fermentation which eventually leads them to being rolled into cigars!
I know that everyone takes shots like this when they’re in the city, so there’s nothing really different about it, but to me what’s different is that it’s mine. Being able to have my own shot of Manhattan and the memories of my first solo trip makes this picture feel magical to me ✨

We were supposed to walk for an hour to get to this place but a random kind stranger helped us and called us a taxi when we only asked for directions! Australians are seriously so kind! ❤

Little treaty today on burger day! As you probably know my favourite burgers are the vegan ones and we had the best burgers today at @thevurgerco 💚 will definitely come back here 🍔
ELLA (and some thoughts)🌴🇱🇰 In the hills of Sri Lanka, it is one of the greenest and most picturesque places we have visited. It was a three hour drive to get here down lots of long winding roads which left us both feeling a bit car sick. The views in Ella are incredible. There is so much to do - loads of walking & view points & tea plantations. Beautiful scenery everywhere you look. The main street is full of restaurants & bars & hotels and is very much set up for tourists. Which is great - there is everything that you could ever need here. But it does make us wonder what Ella might have looked like beforehand. And that’s the same for so many cities around the world which have seen influxes of tourism. It’s made us think about travel and ways we can do so more mindfully without leaving too much of a footprint and without taking away from the original magic and charm of places like this. It’s tricky but one that has got us thinking...

Encontrar un buen CENTRO donde ejercitarse no es nada fácil! En este mes que @fitlifetrainingcenter cumple un año de nacido, celebro haberlo encontrado, haber encontrado un lugar donde no solo ejercitarme bajo una guía y buena supervisión pero donde encontré una familia que disfruta y desea lo mismo. Cero fanfarroneo, cero competencia, esto es trabajo en familia, cada cual por su meta. Por muchos años más 🎉🎉🎉.
29 vuotta, enää 364 yötä siihen että täytän 30. Siis kolmekymmentä. Kysyn vaan yhden kysymyksen: mihin tää aika menee? Vasta juhlin ystävien kanssa kaksikymppisiä Joensuussa, jossa oli teemana eri vuosikymmenet. Normaalisti en juhli synttäreitä, eikä tää vuos tehnyt poikkeusta. Mutta ensi vuonna, sillon juhlitaan kunnolla. Lupaan. Pitäsköhän silloinkin pitää teemabileinä vuosikymmenet, kun sekin vaihtuu ens vuonna? 🙊🎂🎈
Haluaisin asettaa muutaman tavoitteen viimeiselle vuodelle kakskyt ja risana:
- tehdä jotain niin hupsua, että ihan oikeasti hävettää ja naurattaa (tää ei kyllä edes hirveästi poikkea mun normaalista elämästä 😅) - ehdotuksia?
- nauttia enemmän arjen pienistä iloista ja nähdä enemmän kavereita
- peittää mun vanha tatuointi ( jonka suunnitteluun on itse asiassa varattu aika jo @sarppatekeetatskoi ) ja kantaa uutta ylpeydellä 🤩
- haluaisin alottaa paritanssikurssin
- hoitaa ihoa vielä paremmin, ei kai tässä enää nuorruta
- tehdä joku ikimuistoistakin ikimuistoisempi reissu
Hyvää synttäriä mie ja muut tämän päivän sankarit. 🥳

The hardest thing sometimes is knowing what to do 🤔
For those of you who might not know, once upon a time I worked in renewable energy, on control systems for wind turbines. I got into the industry because I’ve always cared about the planet. When I read about what’s been happening in Brazil, as a direct result of the government, it made me sad. .
This is the only home we have, guys. And when we make short sighted decisions to burn down the forest for profit, we’re hurting ourselves by altering the overall balance of the environment and our decision will be felt by everyone who comes after us. What’s happening in Brazil doesn’t feel right. .
I was speaking with a friend yesterday, and while we both agreed it was wrong, we equally agreed it was hard to know what to do. .

The Petronas Towers, also known as the Petronas Twin Towers, were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 and remain the tallest twin towers in the world.
The twin towers appears in alot of movies but the most popular appearance is in "Independence Day: Resurgence“, the towers are seen falling onto the London Tower Bridge by aliens. I absolutely love that movie💁♀️
And you'll be left in the dust

Or you'll be left in the dust
Unless I stuck by ya
You're the sunflower
